Gartner Market Guide for IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools
With the onset of more modular and cloud-centric architectures, many organizations with disparate monitoring tools are reassessing their monitoring landscape. According to Gartner, hybrid IT (especially with IaaS subscription) enterprises must adopt more holistic IT infrastructure monitoring tools (ITIM) to gain visibility into their IT landscapes.

With the onset of more modular and cloud-centric architectures, many organizations with disparate monitoring tools are reassessing their monitoring landscape. According to Gartner, hybrid IT (especially with IaaS subscription) enterprises must adopt more holistic IT infrastructure monitoring tools (ITIM) to gain visibility into their IT landscapes.

The guide provides insight into the IT infrastructure monitoring tool market and providers as well as key findings and recommendations.

Get the 2018 Gartner Market Guide for IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools to see:

  • The ITIM market definition, direction and analysis
  • A list of representative ITIM vendors
  • Recommendations for adoption of ITIM platforms

Key Findings Include:

  • ITIM tools are helping organizations simplify and unify monitoring across domains within a single tool, eliminating the problems of multitool integration.
  • ITIM tools are allowing infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders to scale across hybrid infrastructures and emerging architectures (such as containers and microservices).
  • Metrics and data acquired by ITIM tools are being used to derive context enabling visibility for non-IT teams (for example, line of business [LOB] and app owners) to help achieve optimization targets.
Forrester: Monitoring Containerized Microservices - Elevate Your Metrics
As enterprises continue to rapidly adopt containerized microservices, infrastructure and operations (I&O) teams need to address the growing complexities of monitoring these highly dynamic and distributed applications. The scale of these environments can pose tremendous monitoring challenges. This report will guide I&O leaders in what to consider when developing their technology and metric strategies for monitoring microservices and container-based applications.

IDC: DataCore SDS: Enabling Speed of Business and Innovation with Next-Gen Building Blocks
DataCore solutions include and combine block, file, object, and HCI software offerings that enable the creation of a unified storage system which integrates more functionalities such as data protection, replication, and storage/device management to eliminate complexity. They also converge primary and secondary storage environments to give a unified view, predictive analytics and actionable insights. DataCore’s newly engineered SDS architecture make it a key player in the modern SDS solutions spa
The enterprise IT infrastructure market is undergoing a once-in-a-generation change due to ongoing digital transformation initiatives and the onslaught of applications and data. The need for speed, agility, and efficiency is pushing demand for modern datacenter technologies that can lower costs while providing new levels of scale, quality, and operational efficiency. This has driven strong demand for next-generation solutions such as software-defined storage/networking/compute, public cloud infrastructure as a service, flash-based storage systems, and hyperconverged infrastructure. Each of these solutions offers enterprise IT departments a way to rethink how they deploy, manage, consume, and refresh IT infrastructure. These solutions represent modern infrastructure that can deliver the performance and agility required for both existing virtualized workloads and next-generation applications — applications that are cloud-native, highly dynamic, and built using containers and microservices architectures. As we enter the next phase of datacenter modernization, businesses need to leverage newer capabilities enabled by software-defined storage that help them eliminate management complexities, overcome data fragmentation and growth challenges, and become a data-driven organization to propel innovation. As enterprises embark on their core datacenter modernization initiatives with compelling technologies, they should evaluate enterprise-grade solutions that redefine storage and data architectures designed for the demands of the digital-native economy. Digital transformation is a technology-based business strategy that is becoming increasingly imperative for success. However, unless infrastructure provisioning evolves to suit new application requirements, IT will not be viewed as a business enabler. IDC believes that those organizations that do not leverage proven technologies such as SDS to evolve their datacenters truly risk losing their competitive edge.
